dover does too..Mt arlington does (free and easy to get to) (exit 30) you would have to change at dover or take the train to Hoboken

Dover is also $3/day to park. I take the train from HTown to Hoboken every weekday, and utilize Dover when I need more options. The trains to Penn are very frequent from Dover, and many are direct. Denville does not seem to have any more trains that travel direct. In fact, the Dover train's first stop is Denville, so I assume the schedules are the same.

From what I understand, none of the NJ Transit lots offer overnight parking. If you are looking to have extended parking, you might consider driving to Newark, parking at one of the many park and rides, and catching the shuttle to Newark Broad Street. From there you go one stop to Penn Station, and your car is safely parked for access upon your return. It is more expensive than $3/day, but less expensive than paying a parking ticket or paying to get your car back from impound.

Good luck.


i just called Denville station and they do allow overnight extended parkking told him i needed to park for a week and they said it would be 3 a day......

That's fantastic that Denville allows multi-day parking. The trains you listed are indeed direct from Denville (you are reading the schedule correctly). Direct is the way to go.


You could park at one of the Newark airport overnight lots (public or private) and they take you to the airport. From there get on the monorail to the airport train station. Get a train to NY Penn.

I have parked overnight at the mt arlington station. It's free either way. However you may not feel comfortable leaving your car there. I did it a few times and didn't have a problem.

We went via Dover to NYC friday afternoon, back Sunday evening. Train in was okay, but coming home on the 10 pm train took 1 1/2 hours...every stop! Nice to know about Denville. In Dover, you have to get an overnight pass to park ahead of time. I think it was at least $15...

Pls tell me about the bus drive from Panther Valley. I've driven to the Rockaway Mall to pick up the bus and I think the ride is horrendous.

Makes you wonder how NJ could be bankrupt when they charge for parking at train stations, toll the crap out of you, and have some of the highest property taxes in the USA...

cbel - bus from Mt. Arlington is much better, my sister in law used to do that when she lived in Budd Lake.
